Video of the Week

This is a superb video of fishing in Ireland in the 1960s

Things I Would Buy If Only I Could Afford Them

A nifty Stan Gibbs catalog is always a nice find.

This is a super clean CCBC Deluxe Wagtail Chub.

Edwards fly rods are great casting wands.

Don't know if this is rare, but the Hudson Minnow Bucket is pretty darn cool.

Pflueger Redifors are super cool and affordable reels.

I love line spools, and I rarely ever see an Italian line spool.


Seamaster reels are outstanding fishing instruments.

Creels are often overlooked, but this one would stand out anywhere.

This 1954 Orvis Manchester is a Wes Jordan-built beauty.

This set of A.J. Downey smelt decoys are flat out awesome!

Holy cow is this an impressive (and imposing) fish spear.

As far as fishing-related tobacco tins, they don't get much better than this.

Colorado Floating Moths always remind me of the late Cliff McDaniels.

This is a superb Mitchell 300X in the box.

For every 50 Cozzone saltwater reels there is one Cozzone fly reel.

Wow! This Heddon 100 in frog spot is beautiful.

Speaking of frog spot, this South Bend Whirl Oreno is a super bait.

People love Field & Stream pins, and this Tuna badge is no exception.

Who doesn't love a Chippewa ?

As always, be good to each other, and yourself.
